Last-Minute Thanksgiving Can Be Perfect at the Mt. Washington Tavern



If Thanksgiving plans are still alluding you, might we recommend reservations for the big feast? As usual, the Tavern will be open and offering a special menu featuring all the traditional favorites– which they do oh-so-well. Their regular menu will also be available for those who just can’t go without their favorite Tavern burger. And of course, even if you just have to go to the in-laws for dinner, you can still sneak away for a little aperitif once the rest of the family is in their tryptophan and pecan pie coma. That’s because the Tavern will be open until 2am on Turkey Day. Now, that’s something to be thankful for.

So sure, if the idea of exercise on that particular day offends you, feel free to skip it. But if you’d like the opportunity to get your blood pumping (and build up a hearty appetite before the feast) signing up for a little 5K walk or run may just be the ticket.
